    In less than four weeks’ time, Lou Barlow will release Brace the Wave, his first solo album since 2009’s Goodnight Unknown. Due to hit shelves via Joyful Noise, the nine-track effort was recorded in Easthampton, Massachusetts with Justin Pizzoferrato (Pixies, Speedy Ortiz, J Mascis).

    Last month, the Dinosaur Jr. bassist shared the album trailer; now, he’s let loose its first official single in “Moving”. The track, which has a hypnotic, drone-like quality to it, was reportedly recorded off-the-cuff with a detuned ukulele. Echoing the sentiments of the LP title, the song is about facing challenges head-on. Listen in below.

    Brace the Wave arrives on September 4th; in support, Barlow will head out on a short US fall tour.

    Brace the Wave Tracklist:
    01. Redeemed
    02. Nerve
    03. Moving
    04. Pulse
    05. Wave
    06. Lazy
